|Duffy's Tavern - Ed Gardner, Abe Burrows|
"Hullo, Duffy's Tavern, where the elite meet to eat, Archie the manager speaking, Duffy ain't here---oh, hullo, Duffy . . . " It may have been the most familiar stock opening line in the history of old-time radio comedy. The famous radio dive was one of those old-time radio birds that was at once a popular hit and a show onto which some of the biggest, or at least the most prestigious entertainers (including but not limited to Fred Allen and a few of his "Allen's Alley" demimonde, Clifton Fadima...

|Bob Hope Is Not Funny - Sly in the Morning|
The Library of Congress is hosting an exhibit on the political humor of Bob Hope. Aren't all the people who liked him old, white, and dead? The exhibit paints Hope as a pioneer of political humor but do comedians owe anything to his thin legacy? I even blame Bob's USO tour for the lose in Vietnam.

|The Aldrich Family 97 Eps|
(97 Episodes) "The Aldrich Family" is one of those really GREAT and TIMELESS Old Time Radio sitcoms that make you laugh every time you listen to it. The main characters (created by Clifford Goldsmith) never age. Henry Aldrich (portrayed by Ezra Stone, Vic Jones and Bobby Ellis) is one of those types of teenagers everyone has met at sometime during life, as is his best buddy, Homer Brown (Jackie Kelk, Jack Grimes, Johnny Fieldler)...

|Failed TV Pilot: "Meet The O'Briens" (1954)|
Failed TV pilot called "Meet The O'Briens". Made in 1954, This TV pilot seems more like a 40's comedy short than a 50's TV program. It's easy to see why this wasn't picked up, As although it is fairly funny, they would of ran out of storylines quickly. I don't know much about this pilot. If anyone could get some info on this pilot, that would be useful.

|Failed TV Pilot: 'Time Out for Ginger' (Unknown Year)|
A failed TV pilot called "Time Out for Ginger", based on the play of the same name. Slightly surreal and confusing, It's easy to see why this pilot wasn't turned into a series, Although this pilot is still watchable, with a special guest star that makes it worth downloading. Well below the standards of the time!
